Northern Community Legal Centre's (NCLC) 'Abused and Abandoned' project, funded through our Grants Program, was developed in response to concerns regarding the complex issues, lack of support and isolations experienced by Indian women presenting at their legal service. It was noted that Indian women who were recently arrived and separated, experienced multiple forms of abuse. Since then the project has supported over 150 Indian women with wrap-around legal services as NCLC's Immigration Lawyer works together with their team of Family Violence Lawyers.
On Friday 26 March at 10am NCLC are hosting a webinar to launch their research report. NCLC will draw on findings from its legal practice and the experiences of Indian women in Australia, to present key themes, discuss the adequacy of our legal system to provide sufficient protections and highlight areas for systemic reform.
